About Me

Jimmy Carney is a professional pool player and a very experienced, top level snooker and pool coach who offers one-to-one and group coaching for men, women and children of all ages and all ability levels.

These sessions offer specific one-to-one coaching tailored to your needs and cover a wide range of skills from basics, including cue grip, stance and cue ball control, right through to game psychology. Discover practice routines that you can use to keep on top of your game and all activities from each session are sent to you afterward for you to refer back to when you need to.

Whether you want to take your pool more seriously and step up a few levels, just improve in one or two aspects you’re struggling with or simply want to improve your all round game to impress your friends, my tailored coaching sessions will teach you the skills you need to play like a pro.

Drawing from a vast experience of being a professional pool player and former snooker professional, from many years of developing and delivering my own coaching techniques, coupled with my knowledge of NLP (Neuro Linguistic Programming) in Sports, I am perfectly positioned to deliver techniques that create results, straight from lesson one.
